Dear Juniper Families,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I truly hope you had a wonder summer vacation and are ready to start another fantastic year at Juniper Elementary School. We are very proud of our school and its exceptional programs. Although we have made tremendous growth over the past several years, we are continuously looking for ways to further enhance our school to best serve our students. We look forward to working with you and our local community partners to support your child’s needs and provide him/her with an outstanding educational experience.
As you are aware, educating children is a collective responsibility. We share the common goal of preparing students for their future education and career. We are also tasked to prepare them to be productive citizens. We ask for your support in meeting these goals. I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s education, as a positive home-school connection benefits us all. We will need to work together to ensure that your child not only grows academically, but also works each day toward becoming the best person he/she can be.
I’d also like to ask you to familiarize yourself with our school rules and discuss them with your child. These are available on our school’s website. Printed copies can be requested in the school office. Please be sure that your child attends school each and every day and that they arrive on time. Please refer to our bell schedule for start and end times. Remember that when your child is tardy, absent, or pulled from school early he/she misses out on important learning time. Please arrange medical and other appointments after school hours so your child will not miss valuable instruction. When your child is ill, please be certain to call the school office and provide a doctor’s note if available. Finally, if you wish to discuss a matter with the teacher or principal/assistant principal, please call and make an appointment so we can give you the attention you deserve.
I am anticipating an outstanding year at Juniper Elementary School. My staff and I look forward to meeting you and working together to ensure your child’s success.
Tammy Fleming, Principal
